Ann's Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif

Can you imagine my excitement to receive these photos from Ann of her Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif? Ann's is the first completed one I've seen.

Ann stitched her huswif on 30-count linen from R and R using Bordeaux embroidery thread from Weeks Dye Workes. Look at the wonderful lining fabrics she chose. Wow!!

Ann is the owner of Needles and Knowledge in Ontario, Canada. Her shop will be doing a SAL for Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif. Doesn't that sound like fun? I think the stitchers are now gathering their lining fabrics. I hope they'll keep me posted on their choices.

I've been busy this week working on some accessories for Mrs. Waddelow. The basket bottom is already stitched along with several other small pieces. I'm really excited about the items.

I hope everyone has a great weekend planned. Spring is beautiful here in Ohio, although it is rather cold. It went down to freezing last night, so I'm glad that I haven't taken the electric blanket off the bed yet.

I really really love Mrs. Wadelow and can't wait for the accessories to be released. This one is just gorgeous. I loved Mrs. Wadelow from the moment I saw her.
Lots and lots of Love

Wow, that was certainly quick. I daren't even start mine yet, I have too many WIP's as it is, and I know if I start anything else now, I won't finish the old things.
